We need your help to bring the future of medical imaging to Sheffield.

The MRI-PET scannerThroughout 2017 we are working to raise £2 million to establish a ground-breaking MRI-PET facility. MRI-PET is the most advanced imaging technology to date. It will transform our understanding of serious conditions like cancer, dementia, heart and lung diseases, MND, Parkinson's and stroke and the way we treat them in the future. This will be the first facility of its kind in Yorkshire and a vital investment in the health of people in this region, across the UK and beyond.

An MRI scan produces comprehensive information of the organs, tissues and structures of the body. PET imaging measures how well the body is functioning. MRI-PET combines these powerful tools in a single scan to provide the most detailed pictures of the inside of the body available. With this knowledge we will be able to answer major questions about disease and identify faster and better ways to detect, treat and prevent ill health.

The entire University is behind this campaign and with your help we can make this life-changing project possible.
